If you’re looking for policy documents on aphasia, pediatric dysphagia, social communication disorders, permanent childhood hearing loss or superior canal dehiscence, you may not find them in ASHA’s online practice policy library. Information on audiology assistants, caseload/workload, speech-language pathology assistants, telepractice and unbundled hearing aid sales may not be there, either.
You can find this information on ASHA’s Practice Portal, the new one-stop online resource for clinical decision-making. The Practice Portal launched with a limited number of clinical and professional issues topics, with more to be added soon.
As topics are added, information from the related documents—such as roles and responsibilities, knowledge and skills, and guidelines—will be moved to the portal, and the old policy documents removed. These documents have been rescinded:
  • Training, Use, and Supervision of Support Personnel in Speech-Language Pathology: position statement, guidelines.

  • Knowledge and Skills for Supervisors of Speech-Language Pathology Assistants.

  • Audiology Support Personnel: Preparation, Supervision, and Ethical Considerations: guidelines, position statement.

  • A Workload Analysis Approach for Establishing Speech-Language Caseload Standards in the Schools: guidelines, technical report.

  • Audiologists Providing Clinical Services Via Telepractice: position statement, technical report, knowledge and skills.

  • Speech-Language Pathologists Providing Clinical Services Via Telepractice: position statement, technical report, knowledge and skills, professional issues statement.

The portal is still in development, and members are encouraged to provide feedback. ASHA is also looking for volunteer subject matter experts, reviewers and beta testers for new topics. Interested members can contact portalinfo@asha.org.
